Sleeve Hitch Mod

Recommended Posts

JimH
Here is a mod I just did on my older style sleeve hitch. This should take care of the problem with the plow not staying straight behind the tractor. I purchased the Simplicity Stabilizer plate, P/N 1603816 to complete the mod. The picture with the plow hooked to the hitch shows the bolt and nut orientation I ended up using.

Nice work! I had always been told a plow (or cultivator or disc harrow) is supposed to have that side-to-side range of motion available, for moving through the furrow, and around obstacles. I don't run the plate when pulling a plow on my later style sleeve hitch, but it's great for pulling a box blade, and absolutely necessary for the Scoop Tote. It also helps when transporting a plow...first time I hooked up she flopped over and nearly smacked my wife's car when I pulled out of the garage.

Greg, got the # out of the Simplicity database. Got it from Brenda at Sandy Lake Implement.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
